Tell us about Crouchy’s Year-LateEuros:Live…
It’s going to be a televised celebration of the big Euros games, live after they end. We’ve got amazing guests, live music and, of course, myself, Maya Jama and Alex Horne. We’ve filmed some of the VTs already and I got to spend time with some of the current home nation squads doing some mad things! It’s going to be a lot of fun and a real buzz.
What element are you particularly excited about?
First and foremost, I’m a football fan, so I’m excited about watching the games and reacting off the back of them.
The football guests will be great and I’m a big music fan and I know we have some incredible people coming on. The fact that it’s live and we have a bar and can socialise safely again will be amazing. I’m hoping to incorporate everything we’ve missed – football, socialising and being in one place together – at Wembley, it’s going to be big!
What’s it like working with Maya?
She’s great! She’s effortless in the way she presents. She looks like she’s having a really good time but is professional, whereas I look like I’m having a good time
but I’m unprofessional! Thankfully, she links it all together nicely.
And what about Alex?
His band is amazing! They can play anything. He’s funny and a nice fella, but don’t tell him that as I like to tell him he’s a pest!
Crouchy’sYear-LateEuros: Live is described as the ultimate after-party. What is the best after-party you have ever been to?
David Beckham had a preWorld Cup party at his house which was one of the best footballing parties I’ve been to! But I go to the Isle of Wight festival every year and always enjoy the after-party there, so I’d probably say that!
